News: Plans detailed for Waverley commercial development


Detailed plans have been submitted to Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council for the proposed 60,000 sq m government office campus at Waverley. Utilising 38 acres of land between the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) and the Waverley Community development, the campus is expected to provide office space for 2,000 employees. Helical Bar plc, Governetz Ltd and Haworth Estates (UK Coal) are working together with the intention to provide high specification offices for government departments in response to the desire to move activities out of central London and into the regions. It will complement the high-tech AMP to create a nationally recognised commercial hub and significant economic regeneration and growth in South Yorkshire. The offices will have extra large floor-plates for efficient space utilisation and a BREEAM rating of excellent. To accompany the offices will be a hotel with up to 120 rooms and supporting retail, restaurant and ancillary features. Development is envisaged to start in 2009 for a completion in 2019. Described as South Yorkshire's largest ever brownfield development creating a new 4,000 home community across 741 acres, the proposals for the Waverley Community were submitted in August.
